This page provides interim guidance for linking from IMCOM Enterprise Web sites

The following is adapted from usa.gov guidelines. It will serve as a starting point for IEW policy.


Links to Government Websites

IMCOM Enterprise Web pages will link freely to government-owned or -sponsored public websites. These sites end in .gov, .mil and .fed.us. Sites created by Federal-private partnerships, sponsored by the government with other top-level domains (.com, .net, .org, .edu, .school, .info, etc.) and state government sites are also acceptible. These may be linked directly from our pages,

Links to Non-Government Websites
Links to nongovernmental sites (not owned or sponsored by the government) are allowed when the purpose cannot be served by a public site.

The U.S. government, including the U.S. General Services Administration (the primary sponsoring federal agency of USA.gov), neither endorses nor guarantees in any way the external organizations, services, advice, or products included in these website links. Furthermore, the U.S. government neither controls nor guarantees the accuracy, relevance, timeliness or completeness of the information contained in non-government website links.

Evaluation Criteria
The USA.gov staff evaluates all links using the following criteria:

Does the website provide information and/or services in a way that is not available on an official government website?
Is the website accessible and applicable to a wide audience?
Is the website's content relevant, useful and authoritative for citizens, businesses and/or government officials?
Does the website's information appear to be accurate and current?
Is the website's approach to the privacy of personal information consistent with the government's privacy and security policies?
Is the primary intent of the website to educate and inform, rather than persuade, convert, or sell? The site may include advertising but must be free from heavy marketing or promotion of products.
Does the website provide information free of charge?
Prohibitions
Do not link to any website that exhibits hate, bias, discrimination, specific religious views, or social agendas. Furthermore, IEWreserves the right to deny or remove any link that contains misleading information or unsubstantiated claims, or is determined to be in conflict with IEW's mission or policies.

 

The first version of the whitelist we will use to control external links in the future ia on rhw eifhr.

Please feel free to make suggestions for additions or deletions, or suggest improvements.

For now, we ask garrisons to check the list to make certain they are using an approved URL. In the near future, our servers will be set up so any link to non- dot-gov or dot-mil sites will be permitted only if they are on this list. The system will also include a popup to remind users they are using non-federal sites before they go there.

The linking guidelines will also include the advice to minimize the use of external URLs.

approved URLs

The following list is the mirror image of a whitelist (it isnot a whitelist, which are sites one is allowed to visit on a particular piece of hardware, and it is not the opposite of a whitelist, which would be a blacklist).

Instead, this is a list of nonfederal addresses  you can link to from IMCOM Enterprise Web.

Links to any other sites will be removed as soon as they are found.

Eventually this list will become automated -- you will no longer have the ability to link to nonfederal pages without adding them to this list.

To submit candidates for this list, pleasae contact the IMCOM HQ CMS Manager.
